Mr Shaw and his wife, Caroline, a former special needs teacher, farm 80 acres on a farm at Ilmington, near Shipston-on-Stour, where they have Poll Herefords and a suckler herd. Mr Shaw studied at Hindlip Agricultural College in Worcester and worked on farms from the age of 14. He farmed a smallholding before finally renting his first farm, three years ago.

Mr Shaw said: "We’re absolutely chuffed to be on the poster.

"We’re first generation farmers and we’re so proud of our animals. It’s a real family affair with our kids involved too and the poster really emphasises that farming is for all the family.’

Thornysure 1 Pippa was second in the senior cow and calf class at Moreton Show in 2018 and the Shaw family are looking forward to competing again this year at the event, being held on Saturday, September 7. They will be entering animals in the prestigious National Poll Hereford Show, a feature of Moreton Show since 1967.
